FUN FACTS ABOUT PENGUINS
I just printed these out on card stock.
Penguins do not have teeth but do have spines on both their tongues and the inside of their beaks to help them grip their prey.
Penguins cannot breathe underwater; the duration of their dives varies between species, from 7 to 20 minutes.
Penguins can drink salt water as their supraorbital gland filters the salt from their bloodstream.
Penguins have large solid bones without air spaces to facilitate diving by reducing buoyancy.
Penguins produce oil from a gland near their tails, which they use to provide a waterproof coat for their feathers.
Penguins are birds with black and white feathers and a funny waddle.
Unlike most birds, penguins are not able to fly -- in the air that is. Penguins spend as much as 75% of their time underwater, searching for food in the ocean.
When penguins are in the water, they dive and flap their wings. It looks just like they are flying.
Penguins are shaped like a torpedo. Penguins bodies are built for the most efficient swimming with their average speed in the water being about 15 miles per hour. The only time penguins are airborn is when they leap out of the water.
They are warm blooded, just like people with a normal body temperature of about 100 degrees F.
Penguins eat seafood. Their main diet is fish, though they'll also eat squid, small shrimplike animals called "krill" and crustaceans.
Tobogganing: Penguins lie on their belly and toboggan through the ice and snow. This helps them move quickly.
Surfing: Penguins are often seen surfing through the waves onto land.
Diving: Penguins dive off cliffs and ice flows into the water, hop back up onto the land and dive down again. Line-ups for good diving spots can get very long! There are 17 species of penguin, each slightly different.
